Commencement Exercises 


Friday Evening 

The Thirty-First of May 

Nineteen Hundred and Ninety-One 

Celebrating Twenty-Five Years of Dedicated Service 


Long ago our native people 
Dwelling here upon this land, 
Taught our forebears how to live here, 
Stretching out a helping hand. 

Native people, weary strangers, 
Dwelt together in this place, 
Bravely overcoming hardship, 
Trusting, caring, race with race. 

Massasoit led his people 
Here in Massachusetts Bay, 
Granting peace and trust to strangers, 
Pilgrims who had come to stay. 

We salute you, Massasoit, 
Proudly sharing in your name 
Faith, endurance, peace and knowledge, 
Gifts of strength we now proclaim. 

We will hold aloft our banner, 
Massasoit's green and white, 
Keeping firm our hope and courage, 
Forging paths for human right. 

With endurance, faith for the future, 
Pride where there once was none in sight, 
We share learning with all people, 
Peace and love our guiding light. 

Lyrics written by 
Professor Dorothy Gibbs and Africa Hayes Lambe.

The academic procession is one of the oldest traditions of colleges throughout 
the world. In medieval times the ordinary dress of the university scholar, whether 
student or teacher, was the dress of the cleric including a long gown, and often in 
cold weather a cloak with a hood which could be pulled up over the head for cover 
and protection. 

Although fashions have changed since the 16th century, scholars of the post- 
medieval period have retained the academic attire. Eventually the attire was 
prescribed by university statutes to distinguish the different faculties and degrees-of- 
learning. The associate, bachelor, master, and doctoral gowns differ stylistically in 
cut and decorative motif. 

The colorful hoods, which indicate fields of learning and the institutions con- 
ferring the degree, were originally worn over the head, but during the 16th century, 
caps were adopted and the hood was draped over the shoulder. 

A long tassel is attached to the middle point of the top of the cap, to drape over 
the left edge of the mortar board. The tassel may be black, gold, or the color appro- 
priate to the academic field or level of achievement. 

An Intercollegiate Code has been adopted to represent the different departments 
of learning and has set forth the standards for academic dress in the United States. 
The hoods are lined with the official colors of the college from which the wearer 
received his or her highest degree, while the collar of the hood denotes the academic 
subject area in which the wearer maj^ed. These colors are assigned according to the 
following scheme :

O beautiful for spacious skies. 
For amber waves of grain, 
For purple mountain majesties 
Above the fruited plain. 


America! America! 

God shed His grace on thee, 

And crown thy good with brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea. 

O beautiful for patriot dream 
That sees beyond the years, 
Thine alabaster cities gleam 
Undimmed by human tears. 


America! America! 

God shed His grace on thee, 

And crown thy good with brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea.
